"...watch ye...""For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries" 1 Corinthians 16:9.
An adversary is usually a rival or a fellow preacher who smears another preacher’s reputation. The Lord said "a man's foes shall be they of his own household" Matthew 10:36."...watch ye..." Paul said, "Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do. Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth in peace, that he may come unto me: for I look for him with the brethren" 1 Corinthians 16:10 -11.
Com’on folks, do not waste your energy on despising others. Do not intimidate those working with you, "for they worketh the work of the Lord, as you also do." Instead, acknowledge such men.
"...stand fast in the faith...""Let all your things be done with charity" 1 Corinthians 16:14.
You must also devote yourself to the ministry of saints, "submit to such, and to everyone who works and labors with us" 1 Corinthians 16:16. Participate in giving money, that’s collected for God’s people. Refresh their spirit also.
"...quit you like men, be strong..."And this we will do if God permits.
